I frequent this establishment quite often as I am in Ojai most every weekend. In fact, it is one of my partner's favorite restaurant. This past Sunday, after visiting the famous farmer's market in Ojai, we decided to pop into The Farmer and The Cook...More

We dropped by early one morning and bought some delicious muffins hot out of the oven. Part market, part bakery and all sorts of interesting items to purchase. My friend bought a lovely purple apron and I bought some local Ojai honey. Laid back and...More

Take this review with a grain of salt, as I am neither vegan nor vegetarian. The outdoor patio is what made the experience so great for me. The patio is massive and tastefully designed. The market inside is pretty cool, just expensive. I actually enjoyed...More

An easy way to put together a tasty and healthy dinner or lunch when you want something casual. Also sells some groceries.

Part market, part restaurant, definitely local in ambience & audience, recommended for lunch. I had the veggies tacos which were quite good; my wife had the pea soup, which she loved!

This is one of the most amazing Mexican food restaurants I have ever visited. Plenty of choices for vegans. Be sure to try the warm chai, best I've had outside of India. Literally bought and took home more than a pound of dry chai tea...More

This place popped up as being one of the best in the area, so we stopped in for lunch. We walked in and were confused by the fact that it's a rustic market as well as a casual order-at-the-register restaurant. And then we were confused...More

Let me make it clear that I am not a vegan so this type of restaurant would not typically appeal to me. However, I consistently return to this unique restaurant as the food is good and the ambiance is so funky. The smoothies are also...More

Description
A cafe-market-bakery-salad bar serving Mexican food using organic chiles, tomatoes and tomatillos grown at the farm. The tortillas are handmade and the sangria is topped with local Ojai citrus. Quite a few vegan, raw and gluten-free offerings; everything else is vegetarian. Lovely outdoor patio with a striped green awning and a view of the mountains.
